Complete with beautiful interior design, a fantastic outdoor deck and can't be beat location you'll have the outdoor escape you've all been searching for.

Located just north of Tahoe City you'll find yourselves one block from the paved trail that runs along the west shore of Lake Tahoe and all the way to Squaw Peak, a scenic outdoor adventure awaits just outside your front door. Two and a half miles from your doorstep is Burton Creek State Park, with its miles of unpaved roadway for hiking, biking, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing, that joins both the Tahoe Rim Trail and Fiberboard Freeway.

Nearby beaches include Lake Forest Beach Park, offering a scenic lake view, while world-class skiing is only 10 miles away at Squaw Valley. Take a quick bike ride to downtown Tahoe City, filled with cute shops, cafes and an array of dining choices!

You'll find one bedroom plus a loft heading upstairs. The bedroom boasts a queen bed, A-frame ceilings, warm bedding and a rocking chair. The loft is expansive and roomy, with an antique screen in one corner. On the other side you'll find four twin beds, as well as a TV with DVD player and VCR, couches, and lots of space to play. On this level, there is also a full bathroom with a tub. There is a third bedroom with a queen. With plenty of great sleeping options, this home will comfortably accommodate eight guests!

Comfortable, spacious, full of character -- this Lake Tahoe Nordic getaway has it all!

About Vacasa, CA - Lake Tahoe Office

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.



Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.



Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

We enjoyed our stay. Great sleeping space for teenagers upstairs. Having only one shower is a little inconvenient. Downstairs TV has been upgraded, but local stations only. <br />

Oven has been upgraded. Refrigerator should be next! 😉

Family stay at Nordic Haus

  • 5 of 5

We and our adult children enjoyed our stay at homey Nordic Haus. Very spacious with lots of common space and plenty of beds. Nice furnishings with lots of seating. The Bosch oven with 5 burner stove top was great! For us the house was very comfortable, but don’t expect fresh paint and well-caulked modern bathroom floors. The short driveway is a bit steep so if there has been snow you’ll probably need an awd car.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with a team that competed in the trans Tahoe swimming relay. Optimal property for that purpose. I would not go above 8-10 guests although there are beds for more.
